Netizens have discovered that Taiwanese actress Lin Chi-ling has been silently giving back to society over the past few years and is extremely generous with her contributions.
Besides setting up ‘Chiling Charity Foundation’ in 2011 and selling calendars every year to fund it, the 43-year-old actress has also been donating large amounts of money every month to charity organisations since 2016.
The largest amount she was said to have donated in a single setting was NT$50 million (approximately S$2.23 million), dedicated to building homes for the less fortunate, shocking fans with her generous gesture.
As the actress has never mentioned anything about her ongoing charity work in front of the media, many fans praised her and described her to be an actress who is beautiful inside and out.
Some fans even joked that she donates money as a way to pass time on her phone “whenever she gets bored”.
The actress once shared during an interview that she started giving back to society after one of her good friends, who was suffering from cancer, asked her the question: “How do you wish to be remembered by everyone, after you pass on?”
As she is a public figure, Chi-ling then decided to put her influence to good use and do her part for society to the best of her abilities.
